Christoph Grab comments on the latest results on the search for the Higgs boson and the role of HPC

Today researchers working on the LHC experiment at CERN presented the observation of a new particle with a mass of 125 GeV. This is a very important step on the search for the standard model (SM) Higgs bosson in their data recorded up to June 2012.

In this interview, Prof. Christoph Grab of ETH Zurich and member of CHIPP, the Swiss Institute of Particle Physics comments the results and points out the importance of supercomputing in the search for the Higgs particle.
